Mike, this is not addressed to me but here is a reply anyway: 
Wire rope works perfectly well in applications like this and it is  
available at many home and farm centers and Tractor Supply stores  everywhere.
Wire rope is suitable for outdoor use for long periods of time with  no UV 
The strength ratings are readily available and terminating hardware is not  
expensive or difficult to use.
Why mess with a good and known thing?

I'm  putting together a lowering setup for a HG52SS tower so I can lay it
over  when fully collapsed. I keep finding information about a blue rope
that is  10 times stronger than wire cable and obviously I want maximum
strength  when laying the tower over. The weight when laid over will be
about 950  pounds.

I'm thinking the winch should be 2000 pound rated or more but  I'm not sure
whether to use cable or this rope.

Any knowledge of  this blue rope? Need a professional opinion.
